From Mrs. Jolie Lebe COTE D'IVOIRE MINISTRY OF MINES AND NATURAL RESOURCES.
Dear Prospective Partner,
Permit me to introduce myself my name is Mrs. Jolie Lebe an Ivoirieen citizen, I got your contact through the COTE D'IVOIRE Chamber of Commerce and Industry through a web based directory while searching for a foreign partner to execute this project together. I am the close associate to an undisclosed minister (for the purpose of confidentiality for now)in the present political dispensation of my country. Due to the trust and confidence reposed on me, he has mandated that I seek out a "Reliable and Trustworthy" foreign partner who will help receive funds, the funds in question is in safe deposit totaling US$4m (Four Million United States American Dollars). This amount has to be lodged into a personal or company bank account for commitment into any legitimate investment venture for a
pre-defined time frame. We cannot afford to have a direct relationship with any major investment for now by virtue of our position in Government. We definitely do not want to raise any eyebrows in the ministry as an internal probe might jeopardize his office. The fund came about by series of over invoiced contracts and gratification by contractors who have had their contract entitlement covered by the government. The fund is in a safe deposit and free from any speculation. However, I have managed to push the money abroad through a diplomatic bank transfer to a bank in MADRID(SPAIN) via a Scottish bank. Please, be rest assured that this business relationship will bring a long term and lasting relationship between us, before proceeding with this, terms of agreement will be drawn stating clearly each level of involvement and commitment in this
program. I have the necessary documents backing the deposit to facilitate transfer of the funds to you. The modality for the disbursement of funds is as follows: (1).70% of the total to us (2).30% to you All logistics are in place and all modalities worked out for a smooth actualization of the transaction within the next few working days of commencement. Also be informed that we are conceeding so much of the funds to you for the reason of absolute confidentiallity and committment to securring it till a time when we shall request for our 70% share of it. We shall be provide you with a power of attorney vesting on you the sole power to act for and on our behalf. Be rest assurred that you will be reimbursed with all expenses incured in the process of closing this deal if any. For further details as to the workability of this transaction.please reach me as
soon as possible for further clarification. I will prefer you to contact me confidentially here : email@example.com Thank you and God bless you as I await your urgent response. Yours Sincerely, Mrs. Jolie Lebe

Since youâ€™re here â€¦
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell.
And unlike many informational websites, we havenâ€™t put up a paywall or membership barrier â€“ we want to keep our site as open as we can.
So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we
hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
